Dutch woman who dragged boy under car goes free

THE NETHERLANDS - The public prosecutor's office says a woman from Limburg who drove several kilometres dragging an eight-year-old boy under her car is not to be prosecuted.
The investigation has shown that the woman did not run over the boy, and could not have detected his presence underneath the car.
In December 2007, the boy became trapped under the car at a zebra crossing and was dragged for around ten kilometres.
The 61-year-old driver only discovered the body the following morning.
The public prosecutor's office says there is insufficient evidence that the woman had committed a criminal offence. It is still not known how the boy came to be under the car.
